Roster now offers an exciting feature for managing product reward orders: the ability to send these orders to a webhook instead of directly to a connected Shopify store. This functionality is particularly useful for Roster customers who want more flexibility in handling their ambassador rewards.

Sending Orders to a Webhook
Default Process: Typically, upon order submission, the order details are sent directly to Shopify.
New Feature - Webhook Integration:
Instead of sending to Shopify, the order can now be sent to a webhook.
This is achieved through the 'reward redeemed' webhook in Roster's API, which emits a JSON file to your server.
The webhook captures all order details, including the shipping address, SKU, and quantity.
Your team's software can then process this information for order fulfillment.
Integration with Roster
After processing the order, you can make an API call back to Roster using the 'orders' endpoint.
This allows for updating the Roster system with the order fulfillment status, closing the loop in the campaign management.
This new feature provides an alternative to the Shopify-integrated process, offering more versatility in handling ambassador rewards. It's an excellent choice for those who wish to integrate Roster's capabilities with different systems or have specific fulfillment processes.
